Raising earthworms, is as easy or hard as you want to make it.
you can use just about anything like a tub, Rubbermaid, or even a store bought type like the worm factory.
you can feed them scraps, coffee grounds paper, cardboard and more.
and there is many different types of earthworms, about 5000 or more to be precise. I have Redworms for composting, Europeans for fishing or composting, Africans for fishing or composting, and Canadians just for fishing.
as you raise worms, and learn more, you cant help but get more "earth friendly" as in you use no or little fertilizers, insect asides, and have less bugs.
I use chickens for my bug control, and bees for extra pollination, I sell the eggs, and Honey. I have show/breeding rabbits that produce lots of food for my Redworms and I sell the rabbits so fast I cant keep them in stock, new Zealand reds and whites.
Then when all is said and done, I have the worms, and their castings, I sell the worms, castings, and worm tea. and use allot on my own yard and garden........
so it is a win win circle.
Next thing you know, you have become a save the earth tree huger,LOL
